Someplace to stash my stuff
with one thing and another it has been a while.
Published on March 27, 2017 By starkers In Personal Computing

At long last, after various hold-ups and distractions, days when I felt like crap with vertigo and arthritis, I finally got my AMD FX 8350 in the Thermaltake Level 10 case up and running again.  Admittedly, there were a few things I needed to do to it - like install an AMD GFX card to match the CPU brand-wise, swap out some RAM and HDDS, etc - but that was just one part of a larger project.  I've also been remodelling my desk and reorganising everything so I'm not using as much deskspace, and that has had various stoppages and drawbacks that were out of my control.

First thing was waiting ages for some clamp-to-the-desk monitor stands, and then they were the wrong ones when they arrived... meaning I had to send them back [at their expense] and wait for the right ones.  That took the best part of 7 weeks.  Then I loaned my daughter some money and couldn't afford some hardware items [screws, hinges, etc] until I got it back some 4 weeks later.

As if that wasn't enough, we got the new that Bianca has liver cancer, all while my 12 y/o granddaughter was continually running away from home and rather behaving badly.  And could we get the authorities to help?  No, it was all too much trouble and they had more important cases.  It wasn't until the damage was done that Family Services decided they'd look into it.

So, with all the distractions and hold-ups, I've not had a productive time of it, but bit by bit I am getting there... if only slowly.  The next stages shouldn't take as long because I have all the parts and stuff I need.  It's just a matter of making a new stand to keep my Coolermaster Cosmos II of the ground, then setting up all the peripherals and desk inhabitants and I'm done.

All going well, I hope to be done by this time next week, then I can sit back, relax and enjoy it.  I must admit, it is so nice to be working with a faster machine than the HP 2-in-1 with a 13.5" screen.  Now I'm on a 32" screen and it's like suddenly inheriting a big swathe of real estate with vista views.

Anyhow, it's time for bed.

That would make me feel soooo warm and fuzzy inside

It's making me feel all warm and fuzzy all over... all this extra screen real estate and more space to put things, like the Winstep desktop modules I had no room for on the 13.5" screen.

It sure is!  After being on the 2-in-1 for a while I'm sure enjoying the bigger screen size... not to mention the bigger power from the big beastie.  It's like going from the potty to the big toilet, better in every way and so much more comfortable to use.

Git yer mind out tha gutter... we ain't talkin' 'bout boobies here.  And being that threads which touch on such things are useless without pictures, we'll leave 'em out, orright?
